My continuing love with fall

Pumpkin patches, hay bales, caramel on everything, boots...I could go on really.

What do you love about fall?

Where do I fit in?

I feel like I have plateaued in life...I have so many amazing, talented friends that are doing things with their lives but what am I doing? 

I am still searching for a way to contribute to this world, I would love to find out what it is soon.  I am 30 and I still feel like a lost teenager.

Does anyone else out there in the universe feel this way?

A great idea not inspired by Pinterest

I feel like I have lost some of my own creativity now that I have Pinterest at my beck and call. Well last week I thought of something to brighten up my old couch pillows.

I found some cotton table napkins on clearance at Target, I sewed 3 sides and left the last side open. I stuffed the pillow in and hand sewed the 4th side.

I went from this...

To this for $3 for 2 pillows

Not too shabby Erin

I also did another set in a light brown but forgot to take pictures. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to switch up their pillows without wanting to spend too much!

Some late photos

Here are some photos from our Christmas festivities

Isaiah opening up his Wii....I was very excited for this moment!

Ezra was most unimpressed by most of the presents except for a hangar which I wouldn't let him play with...tears came shortly after.


Presents and more presents

I actually made something

This Christmas I actually made a few things and one of them was a t-shirt blanket for Darrin that I have been meaning to finish for months, luckily with my Mom bring here we were able to finish it in a couple of days.

Thanks Mom!

Amatuer Moment

I took some photos of the kids a few days ago for our Christmas card (I should have done it sooner) and I got this shot which I really like even if it is a bit overexposed. Sometimes imperfect photos can be some of the best ones

I got me a good one...

Meet Ashley one of my very good friends.

I think the world of her.

Watch out for this girl she is going places and when I see her one day in a magazine or on T.V. I can tell people, "Hey I know her!"

Ashley you are a wonderful person and my style guru!!

xoxoxo Love ya!

Back to the B

I just finished my 5th class of Bikram Yoga tonight after a 6 month hiatus...this shiz is rough!! Rough is good though, if I'm close to passing out I know something is happening! HA

Regardless it is finally helping me lose this stingy baby you hit 30 and your body says, "uh yeah right you think eating a couple more vegetables a day is going to do anything?"

Anyone want to come with me and possibly pass out but feel fabulous after?

Homemade memories

Another blog post already? What...

I would like to make some homemade gifts this Christmas so I am trying to think of some easy(possibly no sewing involved) gifts.

Does anyone have gifts that they have loved receiving or gave that are homemade?

I love getting homemade treats/goodies. Granted it doesn't help the weight loss issue but it is still much appreciated and I will eat it all!!!!

I remember as a kid we didn't have much money but we would help my Mom make Rice Kripsie wreaths and homemade chocolates and we would drop them off to friends and neighbours, you always seem to have fonder memories of giving then receiving at Christmas...

My bug

Ezra aka Bug is growing fast he is already 4 months old and is getting quite the personality...I am so excited for his first Christmas! It will just be cute to watch him play in the paper while he ignores his gifts, ah babies they know what's going on don't they?

And just because I toes!

By the way can you believe how long it's been since my last post? I blame Pinterest!!
